ACADÉMIE

Francis Bitonti Studio’s New Skins Workshop Series, led by Francis Bitonti, launched Summer 2013 in Brooklyn, New York.  Exploring new computational design methods and techniques, New Skins Workshop continuously focuses on immersing students with the tools and software needed to design and fabricate complex geometry in computational fashion design. With the intent to create new iconic forms and shapes, students work closely with Francis Bitonti Studio throughout the duration of the Workshops in the development and execution of 3d printed research garments.The New Skins Workshop Series has been featured on Core77, Dezeen, Style Caster, and The Wall Street Journal. 

Online courses are now available here:  Enrollment.

International Programs  will be available early 2014.
